The Tea Party has the Koch brothers, but does Occupy Wall Street have a similarly deep-pocketed behind-the-scenes funding arm? Reuters speculated (based on flimsy evidence) last week that billionaire George Soros had given indirect financial contributions to Adbusters, a Canadian nonprofit and magazine that published an influential story in the summer that sparked the current protests.
